You Bet Your Booty I’m Relentless

My Dad, who might I add, loves me very, very much ascribed an adjective to my normal state of being from the time I was about two years old. Relentless. And wasn't that the truth. I think at the time he didn't necessarily think it was to my benefit, mostly I think I drove him…

Two silly goobers and some German homework... I plopped myself down on our living room floor last night to do my German homework. I took a big, deep breath. After a long day of working, my German homework usually isn’t the thing I want to dedicate myself to. Just in case you’re curious, no, I…

Two Things…
